right here tonight. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. president obama held a press conference saying that his budget for 2012 is responsible and will help the country. as you know, the 2012 spending ceiling is $3.7 trillion. deficit $1.1 trillion. many economists saying that is far too high. also rather embarrassing that the president's own debt commission says he is not doing nearly enough to solve the financial crisis in america. tonight talking points hits a very simple strategy. the u.s. government must go back to 2008 and spend the same amount of money that it did before the recession hit. the budget in 2008 of the $2.9 trillion. $2.9 trillion. almost a trillion dollars less than the 2012 proposal. the deficit in '08 was $458 billion, 60% lower than the projected deficit in '12. let's go back to 2008. that would mean the defense department would get $612 billion instead of $884 billion. department of energy would get $21 billion instead of $30 billion and the department of education would get 66 billion instead of 77. now, the department of education sp

of the entitlements. obama is right to -- on the continuing resolution. but then when we resolve that issue -- and i think we will resolve it in some way -- then you have to buy nature get to entitlements. >> you can have a debate -- >> they know it. they are starting to acknowledge it. >> the president said the republicans' cuts are too deep and it threatens a veto. >> let's use a scalpel. let's not use a machete. >> house speaker john boehner says if the president does not cut deeply, republicans will. >> for the last two years since the president has taken off as the federal government has added 200,000 new federal jobs. and if some of those jobs are lost in it, so be it. we are broke. >> so what? >> they are fighting over this 12%. it the whole game is elsewhere. but like the two political parties -- both the republicans and democrats, while the rest of the country is saying we have a problem with the debt but the two political parties -- >> they are fighting about -- >> maybe they will get to it but they did not show -- >> they are writing about subsidies for poor people and heating in the nort

obama has condemned the violence used by security forces in bahrain. in a telephone call, mr. obama warns the stability of the gulf state depended on meaningful political reform. at least 50 protesters were wounded when security forces opened fire on demonstrators. this time as they're trying to occupy pearl square. the u.s. and u.k. warrant their nationals against travel to bahrain. >> bahrain is in crisis. protesters tried to march to the center center -- march to the city center again. this was the response. the police and army are using tear gas and bullets. on the day they buried their dead, there was more bloodshed on the streets. dozens were wounded. some were critically wounded. >> they calls for restraint from britain and the others have fallen on deaf ears. the violence in the small gulf state is far from over. >> she has lost a son. he was buried today. one of six protesters to die this week. he was shot by the police. he was killed for a cause of rooted in this country's division. >> people want to stop discrimination. people want to stop the systematic torture going on
election he warned that barack obama's presidency would be like a jimmy carter second term. the joke didn't need any explanation. democrats responded to the differences between obama and president carter, not by defending the former president. even if carter became known for having one of the most active post presidential careers in american history, his time in the white house has remained a symbol of failed presidential leadership. over the past few months there have been many commentators who have compared obama to carter rather than fdr, and the nuns or ronald reagan. the point is clear. in contemporary political debate and in most history textbooks carter is consistently remembered as a president who failed to articulate a compelling political vision and who was unable to hold his party together. the image of a worn down carter hold up in the white house desperately trying to resolve the iran hostage crisis in to the final hours of his term became almost as iconic as the images of president john f. kennedy huddled with his brother robert trying to avert a nuclear war during the cuban
to transform not only lives but transform the systems because the systems need to be healing systems. as obama says, we need to start uttering healing words. president obama said that at the tucson memorial. we have to start uttering healing words to one another instead of wounding words. what we are trying to do is create systems -- school systems and juvenile justice system is that he'll instead of juvenile justice systems and school systems that continue to wound our youth. >> can i just say something about the systems of discipline in schools? so that before it even gets to the place where it is an issue, is that those systems definitely need changing. the question that parents need to ask when they have been told that their child has been involved in some misbehavior is to ask what was happening? what were the conditions? what were the circumstances? what were the antecedence that led to this behavior? because if we do not fix those, we will seed the systems you talk about.

president obama sided with the state workers. >> some of what i've heard coming out of wisconsin, where you're just making it harder for public employees to collectively bargain generally, seems like more of an assault on unions. >> woodruff: speaker of the house john boehner took issue, saying: >> if the president truly wants an adult conversation about our fiscal challenges, shouting down reform-minded leaders is a bad way to start. call off the attacks and lead, mr. president." the fight is being joined in other states, where republicans are also trying to lower employee benefits. protests are planned in coming days in ohio, indiana, missouri, new jersey, and pennsylvania. more than 20 state legislatures are considering benefit cuts. we get two views now on the issues being debated in wisconsin and elsewhere. randi weingarten is president of the american federation of teachers, one of the unions protesting in wisconsin. she was in madison last night. and jonathan williams is the director of the tax and fiscal policy task force for the american legislative exchange council, which represen

and see if it holds is the coalition between the clintons and president obama. that is to me the key political fact in the country, that coalition. if that weren't there, hillary clinton f she were still senator of this state up in new york would be the lightning rod for every middle east problem, every economic problem. she would be the way ted kennedy was back with jimmy carter. the party would be split. and the fact that it is not split i think is key to its success, and its possibility of winning a significant re-election. if they weren't united as they are, i don't think they would be winning next time. >> rose: do you think if she was in the senate now. >> the things that have happened she might be positions herself to challenge. >> not to challenge but even if she didn't, she would be positioned to inevitably play the role of critic because it would just come to her it would be the automatic role for somebody like that. and as it is, because she's part of the team and done this perfect job so far, bill clinton's part of the team, it's really that, i don't know if i said this b
and work on the bill that would ultimately become president obama's health care reform. but it didn't happen. the democrats lost an election in massachusetts for the senate seat. and that changed the paradigm, that changed the narrative, that changed the debate. and then what happened? the house took up the bill passed by the senate, conveniently a bill that had been passed by the house of representatives the summer before as a housing bill, h.r. 3590, look it up at home. 3590, passed the senate. why would senator reid, why would the other body take up a previously passed house bill and turn it into a health care bill? because it wasn't a health care bill. it was a tax bill. it was a tax bill that had by constitutional authority had to originate in the house of representatives. so then the other body had the perfect vehicle. take the housing bill, strip out the housing language, put in the health care language, pass it on christmas eve and we'll gather back after the new year's eve festivities and create a conference committee and pass the president's signature health care legislati
committee and a group called organizing for america, that is the political machine for president obama are are heavily in what is going on in wisconsin. the even hoping to organize the protests that you reit lit there and they enhanged teachers to slow up at the capitol, don't show up in the classroom. that could be a clear violation of their contracts. with us, constitution law attorney day ri david rip ken. always great to see you. if the teachers are violating their contracts by not showing up for work and instead they are out there, you know, protesting, could they bow fired? >> they can be fired. >> i also think there is a liability to what is being done by the dnc. in one it is a tort, interference with a contractual relationship. they are violating wisconsin law. aiding and abetting a violation of the contractual relationship. aiding and abetting perhaps the conspiracy of. the president, of course, has spoken in their defense and in one level this is a political statement, a policy statement. i wonder if you look at it for a second we are not just talking about a labor dispute f

does it mean for your tax dollars? >> wisconsin's massive budget battle continues with president obama supporting the union and mobilizing the dnc to gather protesters on the ground but not all unions actually want his help. >> and schools taking discipline to a new level slapping g.p.s. trackers on students who skip class. should parents be in charge of controlling bad behavior? >> coffee time. "fox and friends" continues right now. good morning, everyone. >> i expect this in hour number two? come on. dana is here for us this morning. and we got e-mails at 4:50 this morning from john boehner's office because they were actually still working at 4:00 this morning trying to get through the massive cuts in spending to the 2011 budget, $60 billion cut from the 2011 budget. >> it was not close. here is how the vote broke down. yes, 235; no, 189. a lot slashed from the budget. a lot of democrats not happy. but this is setting up a veto. and it is setting up a fight in the senate. and a government shut down as a result. >> it is coming together. president obama will exercise his first veto so

down. there are reports that president obama's political crew organizing for america is encouraging the demonstrations. that would make sense because what is going on in wisconsin could make or break the democratic party in america. there is no question with the 3. billion-dollar short fall wisconsin is in trouble economically. so public workers will have to concede some benefits. even with governor walker's give back proposal wisconsin state workers are far better off than they would be doing the same jobs in the private sector. but the crucial matter for america is the labor union business. liberal democrats need the liberal unions to support them. president obama cannot be reelected without union money and votes. republican party says the country is bankrupt because the labor unions have secured so much for their workers. that the economy is being strangled because of that. the "wall street journal" today says, quote: the battle of madison, wisconsin, is the semmal showdown over whether government union power can be tamed. the alternative is higher taxes. until the middle class
